Photos by Paula Scott and Levi Sutkay

Antique, classic and modern cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors took center stage in downtown Bluffton on Friday, June 17 during the 54th Bluffton Festival of Wheels. There were 190 entries in the show, making it one of the largest events in recent memory.

The Bluffton Lions report that the 50/50 drawing produced $385 for the lucky winner and that seven other high-end donations were given away with the 50/50 ticket drawing. The Lions expressed their thanks to all the sponsors and others who donated goods, along with Lions and community volunteers who helped make this such a successful event.
